There are three kinds of Energy Rating labels for air conditioners.
The one for Cooling-Only models has a blue band of stars and a blue box for the energy consumption figure. As the name implies, these air conditioners only have a cooling mode.
The label for Reverse-Cycle models has two bands of stars. The blue band shows the efficiency when cooling, and the red band shows the efficiency when heating.
There are also two energy consumption figures – blue for cooling and red for heating.
As the name implies, the term reverse cycle means that the operation of the air conditioner can be internally reversed to provide indoor heating or cooling as required – the principle used for both modes is the same.
There is also a label for heating only models (with no cooling function) but these are unusual in Australia.
What is an inverter?
A new innovation in air conditioner technology is the use of an inverter – or variable speed drive in the motor system that drives the compressor.
While these systems tend to look less efficient at full load (ie: their star rating at rated capacity is not always as high as conventional air conditioners), they tend to be very efficient at part load operation, which is a more common mode in a typical household.
So if you are likely to use an air conditioner for long periods because you live in a hot climate, it may be worth considering an inverter system. They are generally more expensive to purchase – but can be more cost effective to operate.
